Ester Park Clean-up Day

Help us keep the Ester Community Park the best in town!

2017 Park Clean-up list

Every year there’s a list of a range chores for volunteers of all ages and abilities.

It’s “that time of year” again! Time to get our Ester Park all cleaned up and ready for a busy summer of outdoor activities! Ester park cleanup day will be on Saturday May 18th from 10-4(?). This is a great day to bring the entire family out and spend some time helping with the annual chores of raking leaves, general cleanup, stage prep, weed whacking, sweeping the basketball court, tree trimming, painting and organizing. I will have a list posted on the shed, and you can pick the job that suits you (and your kids) best! We will have hotdogs and hamburgers for lunch, along with beverages available for all that volunteer. This is always a fun day of working together as neighbors to help make our Ester Community Park the awesome place we all love! Look forward to seeing you… the park czar.

Become a 2019 Mortgage Meeter!

Help Ester Community Association meet its monthly mortgage on the Ester Community Park.

Ester Park has a monthly mortgage of $439.34 which adds up to $5272.08 per year. If 44 people would each pay $10 per month or $120 per year the mortgage would be covered!

Mortgage Meeters are a special group of friends whose support we can count upon. With most of the mortgage covered we may turn our attention to fundraising for park maintenance and improvement. We are very proud of our stage and its improved electrical system, our new ice surfacing machine, and other improvements to our field, playground, and sanitation. This park truly belongs to the people of Ester and is the result of their countless hours of volunteer labor.

If you wish to be a 2019 Park Mortgage Meeter please mail Mortgage Meeter app 2019 with your donation to ECA MORTGAGE MEETER, BOX 14, ESTER AK 99725.

Donations are fully tax deductible and a receipt will be mailed to you.

Thank you for your support.
